This image of Jupiter’s southern hemisphere was captured by NASA’s Juno spacecraft on the outbound leg of a close flyby of the gas-giant planet. Citizen scientist Kevin M. Gill created this image using data from the spacecraft’s JunoCam imager.

这张来自木星南半球的图像是由NASA的朱诺号航天器在近距离飞越这颗气态巨行星的过程中拍摄的.公民科学家("公民科学家"是指没有经过相关专业训练但参与科学研究工作的业余科学爱好者,例如以网络的方式参与科学研究的基础性工作,导航狗注)Kevin M. Gill使用来自朱诺号航天器上的JunoCam成像仪提供的数据制作了这张图片.

 

The color-enhanced image was taken at 11:31 p.m. PDT on May 23, 2018 (2:31 a.m. EDT on May 24), as the spacecraft performed its 13th close flyby of Jupiter. At the time, Juno was about 44,300 miles (71,400 kilometers) from the planet’s cloud tops, above a southern latitude of 71 degrees.

这张彩色增强的图片拍摄于太平洋标准时间(PDT)2018年05月23日晚上11点31分(美国东部时间05月24日凌晨两点三十一分),此时是朱诺号航天器第31次近距离飞越木星.

 

JunoCam takes advantage of Juno’s unique polar orbit, studying the atmospheric dynamics and clouds right up to Jupiter’s poles, which no spacecraft has ever done before.

JunoCam成像仪得益于朱诺号独一无二的极地轨道,对木星的大气动力学和云层进行研究,在此之前,从来没有其他航天器做过类似的事情.
